For 2021 the regulations have been tweaked for the Hot Hatch Championship. The championship was a close contest in Class B, C and overall for the 2020 season. Class A however was easy pickings for Gary Prebble as the sole Class A entry for the entire season, his closest competitor Steve Sawley only competing at Mallory.

The structure change will see Class A disband, with Class B becoming the new Class A (200bhp/tonne). Class C (145bhp/tonne) will remain unchanged so in-between will now sit the new Class B (175bhp/tonne), this will be suitable for Clio 172/182/197 and Fiesta ST’s etc, that struggled at the lower end of Class B in previous years. Another addition will be the Clio X65/X85 cup cars will be allowed to compete in Class A with a weight penalty due to the sequential box.
